This was easy and delicious! I was unable to find andouille sausage at my neighborhood grocery store, so I used "cajun sausage", which was a bit salty. Next time I will search for the andouille sausage, or add some smoked ham or turkey. Overall, the beans and rice had a wonderful flavor... I served this with fresh out of the oven cornbread. I will definitely be making this again!

Flavor was great, but we found it a bit spicy. I used healthy choice smoked sausage because I wasn't able to find the andouille sausage either. I will make again, just cut back a bit on the cajun spice.

This was pretty good, but mine turned out very salty. I did make in the crock pot. Put in ingredients then covered some with water. Would put in less seasoning next time to decrease the salt.

These were excellent! I drained water beans had soaked in. Sautéed veggies slightly in 1T butter and cut Creole seasoning back to 1 1/2 tablespoons. After putting beans, sautéed veggies and seasoning into slow cooker I added about 5 cups of fresh water just to cover. Used smoked turkey sausage instead of andouille and added it after about 3 hours to keep it from getting overdone.

This made for a nice dinner. I choose to omit the sausage all together and it was still a delicious hearty dinner. I made this for the freezer challenge. It freezes wonderfully and is a super easy dinner with a quick zap in the microwave and served over hot rice.

This is good but needs some amount adjustments, I used my The Best Creole Seasoning! for the Creole seasoning, and added in 3 seeded and chopped jalapeno peppers, I also increased the dry sausage and cooked this on top of my stove, we enjoyed this, thanks MG!

I would have given this recipe a 5 star rating but I messed it up badly but the flavor was so good that I will be making it again, THE correct way :) What I did was I put the beans on to soak over night and early in the morning I drained them and tossed them into the crock pot with all the other ingredients including the 7 cups of water. About 2 hours and 3 cups of coffee later I realized my mistake. By then I let them finish cooking and had red beans and rice soup. I drained off the extra juice as well as possible. But to my credit I did save the juice and the next day I tossed some veggies, cold cooked rice and cooked chicken into it and had a wonderful chicken soup. :) So for all of us nonmorning people remember to soak the beans in 7 cups of water and then dump it all into the crock pot and don't add another 7 cups of water to it. LOL
